Mrs. Emily Waters
My name is Emily Waters and I am 1 of the 4 teachers on the 2nd grade team at Seven Oaks Elementary Media Magnet.
I'm a two-time graduate of Winthrop University in Rock Hill, SC. I earned my Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education where I completed a year long internship in first grade. During that year I realized how important reading is, so I returned to Winthrop to earn my Master's degree in Literacy. After that, my husband Adam, and I spent three years in Upstate South Carolina, where I taught first grade. We are both Dutch Fork High School graduates and moved back to Columbia in 2018 where I started my journey at SOEMM in second grade! Last year I was a Flexible Innovative Virtual Education (FIVE) teacher for second grade and I am so excited to return to a second grade classroom this year.
When I'm not in the classroom, I enjoy spending time outdoors. I love hiking, swimming, playing sports, bird watching, and trying to paint! If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me. For additional information please visit Our Class Site.
